4 upcoming whatsapp updates you're going to love

Recent WhatsApp updates and privacy policy changes have caused a substantial number of its long-term users to explore other instant messaging apps, such as Telegram and Signal. Needless to say, that’s not what WhatsApp wants to see happen. To give those who have not left yet more reasons to stay, WhatsApp developers are now testing multiple new features, which should soon be released as updates for Android and iOS.

Multi-Device Login

According to WhatsApp parent company Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg, WhatsApp beta testers will soon be able to log in to WhatsApp Web or the WhatsApp Desktop application even without the WhatsApp smartphone app running on their mobile device. Most other instant messaging apps already support multi-device login, so it’s about time WhatsApp users get to enjoy this convenient feature as well.

View Once

WhatsApp has more than 2 billion users around the world, and many of them use the instant messaging app to share sensitive information. Soon, WhatsApp users will be able to send an image or video that will disappear as soon as the recipient views it, making it impossible to share it with any other people.

New Archive

Right now, the option to archive a chat in WhatsApp is not really working as most users expect it to work. When you receive a new message from someone whose chat you decided to archive, the chat will appear back on the main screen, distracting you from conversations that truly matter. The New Archive update will change this, ensuring that archive chats will always stay out of sight and out of mind.

In-App Notifications For iOS

All users of the WhatsApp iOS app can look forward to redesigned in-app notifications, which will display more information in the notification banner, including image and video thumbnails. When expanded, the notification banner will display a chat preview. It’s worth noting that the message read status won’t change when a user decides to expand the notification banner.

amazon has partnered with music streaming service anghami

Amazon’s Prime subscription service offers an excellent value proposition because it includes not only free shipping but also access to a huge library of songs, among other things. Unfortunately for music lovers in the MENA region, the Amazon Prime music library includes mostly songs from English-speaking countries. But that’s about to change soon because Amazon has partnered with Anghami, the first legal music streaming platform and digital distribution company in the Arab world.

As a result of the new partnership, Prime subscribers in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will automatically get a free six-month subscription to Anghami Plus, a premium subscription service that offers an unlimited access to Anghami’s large content catalog and unlocks extra features such as the ability to play songs offline, display lyrics, and enjoy music in high quality.

“This collaboration with Anghami is a perfect example of how we work together with leading local brands to innovate on members’ behalf, offering them the best experience possible,” said Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice President of Amazon Middle East and North Africa. “We’re excited to see Prime members in both Saudi Arabia and the UAE enjoy Anghami Plus and all it has to offer, alongside other shopping, savings and entertainment benefits already included in their membership”.

The partnership with Amazon is guaranteed to help Anghami realize its global ambitions and compete with other music streaming services, most notably Spotify and Deezer.

Several months ago, Anghami entered into a merger agreement with publicly traded special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Vistas Media Acquisition Company Inc. The goal is to list Anghami on the New York NASDAQ exchange, giving it access to global growth capital.

Currently, Anghami provides its users access to more than 57 million Arabic and international songs, as well as podcasts and live radio. Amazon Prime subscribers who decide to keep using Anghami can get an additional 50% discount for the next six months.
